University of Wisconsin-Madison
The Fair Trade University campaign at the University of Wisconsin–Madison aims to critically assess our role as a global consumer. Are we ethical consumers within our campus community? How are we teaching the importance of conscious consumerism to our students and campus visitors? How is our activity in the global market affecting lives around the world? These are the questions we aim to address during this important initiative. Follow the Labor Codes and Licensing Advisory Committee and the Office of Sustainability as they team up with campus partners to recognize and expand fair trade practices at UW–Madison. On Wisconsin!
